Well I finally bit the bullet, and after much deliberating, I decided to enter the Festival of Quilts competition 2017. This is the quilt that I entered in the Two Person category - it's Bluebird Lane, which was bought as a BOM back in 2015 from Patchwork Chicks here in the UK, and was made with a selection of fabrics from the Autumn Lily collection by Blackbird designs for Moda. This gorgeous pattern is by an Australian designer, Natalie Bird, from The Birdhouse Patchwork Designs. The amazing freehand custom quilting was completed by Janette Chilver J-Quilts. This should be returned to me tomorrow, and I'm rather anxious about reading the judges comments. I've been contacted by a few ladies who follow my FB page Nicola Foreman Quilts, who had seen it and photographed it, and reading their lovely remarks really made my day. I was able to go the FOQ on Sunday and seeing my quilt hanging alongside so many other beautiful quilts was really exciting! Many thanks to my friend Lynne who kindly took a picture of the quilt with the maker!
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
